Kathmandu, September 12
Prime Minister KP Sharma Oli says Nepal is not a landlocked country anymore.
Speaking at a function that discussed China’s Belt and Road Initiative in Kathmandu on Wednesday, the Prime Minister said Nepal would have an easy access to other countries of the world now as Nepal and China have agreed to let Nepal use all of the ports there to access seas.
He was of the view that it was a great opportunity for Nepal as it would be instrumental in the country’s economic development.
In another context, the Prime Minister reiterated that Nepal was holding discussions with both the neighbours–India and China–about extending their railway lines to Nepal.
Oli said cooperation with both the countries was a must to ensure Nepal’s smooth economic development.
